Oh boy. This chart really shows how screwed McLaren Honda are. That translates to 160 less laps than the next closest team and less than 40% of the laps that the Mercs did (1096 vs 425).

Force India goes pink as they have a new sponsor.

Amazing that painting a car pink makes it less ugly.
Also, this is great:

That 2017 wind tunnel 6:1 model would look pretty sweet in my spare room/office.

There's a 30 min special on TSN about Lance Stroll. Looks like it'll replay on the weekend.

Go time! I'll probably watch practice as I would imagine they will have plenty of new info to share. Should be interesting. Hamilton is saying Ferrari is faster, but I'm sure that is psychological games.

Remember back in 1998 when McLaren were sandbagging all the way through pre-season testing, and then they ended up lapping the entire field in Oz? I'm desperately hoping that's the case this year.

That is not going to happen. Nice wish, though!

Lewis is on a tear. Just destroying the rest of the field through practice. Curious to see how qualifying plays out.

Seb just set a new track record in FP3.

I imagine it'll fall further in qualifying.

The race lap record could fall too on Sunday.

Stroll crashed and now his status for qualifying is in doubt.

Cool shot some guy posted to Reddit. Those cars are just flying thru turns 11/12.

Liberty absolutely has to rework some of the cameras to give us a better sense of this sort of thing because it is hair raising watching the cars manoeuvre the track at those speeds. Not to mention the sound.
